Among The Fields Of Gold

Among The Fields Of GoldBy now you’ve heard about the passing of Palomma Casanova, maybe from Aline’s post here. I did not know her personally or ever speak to her, to my recollection. I can’t claim any personal grief or loss. But that isn’t to say that I’m not affected because really all of SL is affected. The Free Dove was an institution in Second Life for over 18 years. It was always around as a place to send new players or even veterans that needed to spruce up their avatars for free. In that way, The Free Dove and FabFree had the same mission. It was strange shopping at The Free Dove for this post, knowing that it’s creator is no longer with us and that it might be the last time I’m there before the doors close for good.

I picked up a few items and went to a pretty sim of sunflowers that I found on Palomma’s profile picks, that it appears she owned as well. The free items that I’m wearing from The Free Dove are:

  • Free sweater dress by Satus Inc in sizes for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass and Physique), TMP, and fitmesh sizes XS-XL
  • Free hair by Faga with a style HUD including all the colors
  • Free boots by Shoe-Ddiction sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, and Venus

To get these pieces for yourself you just need to be in The Free Dove group (it’s free to join). Then head over to The Free Dove to get the things that I’m wearing and so much more, all for free. There’s no word on how long the sim will remain so you’ll want to make the trip sooner rather than later.

Thank you Palomma, for your amazing contribution to the SL community. I have a feeling that The Free Dove and you will be remember and talked about long after the sim disappears.

When You Walk My Way

When You Walk My WayHi there. Just popping in to show you this cute free outfit that I found at Look At Me. The fun high waisted skirt and cropped sweater can be worn separately and would be so easy to mix into other outfits.  There is a HUD for other color options included, and most of the others are rather Christmas-y. However, I thought this blue pattern was just perfect for running some late winter errands, provided you don’t need to be outside for too long.

Sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

I guess I’d better get to the best part. The group at Look At Me is free to join and the gift is free as well. There are also a few other free gifts available, plus some lucky boards. I was having a good lucky board day, I won twice while I was there! Hopefully you have the same luck.

Today I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything

Today I Don't Feel Like Doing AnythingOh you know, just hanging around. Looking cute. Normal old Sunday. Not doing anything…except collecting freebie and sale items, of course!

For Free

I don’t spend enough time collecting FabFree group gifts. I really should be better about that. The FabFree group is always free and the gifts are free, what’s not to love? You can see the complete FabFree group gift list here. For right now, I’m wearing the new free gift that Paper.Sparrow put out. It’s this sexily cute corset top in red. All you’ve gotta do is wear your FabFree tag and go to Paper.Sparrow to pick one up for yourself.

Sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

On Sale

You know I love the weekend sales. I’ve managed to be rather restrained lately, but couldn’t resist this gorgeous hair from Stealthic. It’s only 60L per color pack for Happy Weekend and includes a style HUD. Perfection.

Kiss Me Under The Mistletoe

Kiss Me Under The MistletoeHopefully you’ve heard about the fantastic-ness that is the free group gift extravaganza by Lelutka and friends. The heads are an unbelievably generous free gift, but I’d be remiss if I let that over shine all of the other amazing things that are also being given away for free as part of the event. You can read all about what’s going on here, and I’ve also found this page over on seraphim to be super helpful because it shows pictures of everything that’s on offer.

So Much More

An easily overlooked perk of all of these group gifts by all of these amazing creators, is that all of their groups are free to join till it ends on December 30th, even the ones that normally have a cost to join. There are so many normally paid groups that are free right now! It’s the perfect opportunity to jump into these groups while the jumping’s good.

But I digress. The first thing I did, besides grabbing the heads, was tp hastily to Deetalez.   Deetalez makes the most gorgeous skins and they were my go to for a long time, but y’all know I can’t stick to just one skin. Still they are completely lovely and a free skin by Deetalez is not something to miss. Snow has the prettiest rosy cheeks and nose and perfect lips, like I’ve just come in from the cold. It comes in three shades with various options.

Another Group!

Unrelatedly, Lilleth Mills has their group set to free temporarily. There will be a cost to join after December 31st. There are some sweet and sexy free past group gifts up on the wall, and the most recent free group gift is my outfit. The sweater and skirt is all one easy to wear piece. There is also a HUD that allows you to change the skirt and the sweater independently of each other to a handful of festive colors. Included are these sizes:

  • GenX Classic
  • GenX Curvy
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Lucky Board Love

In the last few months, I have been too impatient to play lucky boards. I think that happens when you’ve been on SL for a few years. Eventually, you say… “meh, I’m too lazy to camp…” However, sometimes it is SO worth it, so I’ve been trying to play all the boards I’ve missed lately. I keep a little folder of LMs to hop to, hoping my letter will show up. I got some luck at Look At Me and Lybra, and I’ll show you what I won today from their great lucky boards.

The first lucky board prize I won is from Look At Me, and no group is needed to play the boards there. I love the Nadine dress in brown, and it’s free! The dress comes with a HUD that allows you to change the colours of the metals.

  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Petite

Coming Soon

The second lucky board prize I want to share are these fabulous heels. I just love these. These are free at Lybra on their lucky boards. You need to join their free group to get their lucky board prizes. You can win these fantastic shoes in black (shown here) or red. I landed both pairs and I couldn’t be happier. The shoes include a hud that allows you to change the textures of the metals and the soles of the shoe.

Sizes Included (Shoes)

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Erika
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Kupra

Coming Soon

Some new Gifts from DeeTaleZ

DeeTaleZ has some new group gifts out for their group members. Their group is currently free to join, and all of the gifts there are free group gifts. You will find the group gifts in the Lelutka EvoX section of the store.

  • My lipstick is from a natural pack of BOM lipsticks, which is one of the new group gifts.
  • I am also wearing the “liquid” eyeshadows, which come in BOM layers in several different colours.

Sizes Included (lipstick & eyeshadow)

  • BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX

Enjoy, FabFree!

It Gets So Real Sometimes

It Gets So Real Sometimes

Happy weekend, FabFree! I’m feeling some 90’s vibes today! And that’s the Truth!

Truth

Yeah, that was a bad pun. But Truth has spoiled us yet again with another free VIP group gift hair! Don’t you just love it when a gift hair is exactly what you’d pick out, if you were shopping for hair? That’s how I feel about Eclipse. The free gift comes with an extensive HUD of styling options, streaks, and pages of colors; plus various head and chest sizes. The Truth VIP Group costs 350 very well spent L to join and you can find this gift waiting for you in group notices, no TPing necessary.

Killin’ It

This top is called Millennial and definitely contributed to my overall vibe. It is a group gift from Off-Line. I don’t know if it’s a faux pas to show old group gifts, but I love to! I have this inventory overflowing with goodness, it seems silly to only show the new stuff. Maybe you didn’t know that Off-Line has an incredibly generous wall of freebies waiting there for you, and the group is free to join. The halter that I’m wearing comes with a HUD of other sayings as well as options of plain colors with no words. But I opted for “killin’ it” (I know it’s a bit hard to read in my photo) because it made me think of Sublime and that is certainly another ’90s throwback.

Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
